Thriving Through the Arts.

Arts In Reach empowers teenage girls and gender expansive youth ages 11 to 22 through inclusive, creative community.

AIR is a Safe Space

We value inclusivity and kindness over competition and status. AIR is a supportive community where teens feel safe to express their authentic selves and take on challenges through the arts.

AIR Creates Opportunities

We believe all teens should have opportunities to thrive through the arts as a means of overcoming challenges and becoming self-reliant adults. Our programs are accessible, diverse, and allow teens to lead and grow.
